4.48/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75
Poured into a Chimay goblet at about 55-60 degrees. Bottled 08/30/12
Appearance: Dense golden orange. Creamy, pillowy head w/ tiny bubbles which recedes slowly.
Smell: Fresh straw, dandelions, citrus, and a bit peppery.
Taste: Dry, spicy, long finish where the notes from nosing can be revisited
Mouthfeel: Dry and initially a slight bit creamy even; then creates a small amount of "cottonmouth," but not in a negative way.
Overall: An absolute classic and truly unique experience. I always look forward to this beer, and it has yet to disappoint. This beer to me is greater than the sum of its parts. I would love to try this when it is super fresh someday.
Serving type: bottle
